Contrary to some early news reports and online chatter Wednesday morning, both the missing teen and a homicide investigation at Danvers High are connected, according to District Attorney's office spokesperson Carrie Kimball-Monahan.
A spokesperson for the Danvers police said she couldn't confirm or deny those early reports and that the DA would address those questions at a press conference Wednesday morning at the high school.
That press conference is scheduled for 9 a.m. Kimball-Monahan said there is no threat to public safety at this time. The Danvers Public Schools remain closed.
Danvers Patch will have more details as they become available.
